Labour leader Phil Goff says his party has a plan to meet the future costs of superannuation without raising the pension age.
Mr Goff says Labour does not believe raising the age of eligibility is necessary.
“We think that we can avoid that alternative through the mechanisms that we’ve put in place in the past that the Government has stopped funding – the Cullen Fund – and through a policy that’s not a one-off sale of state assets, but one that will raise tax revenue on an ongoing basis.”
Good grief Ā only 4 months later and his is now telling the nation the exact opposite, I just bet that if he got elected he would flip flop again.
He said labour wouldn’t do a capital gains tax in February and then announced a capital gains tax in August. He said labour wouldn’t raise theĀ retirementĀ age in July and thenĀ announcedĀ in October they would. Labour and Phil Goff simply can’t be trusted.
